In partnership with the Hoedspruit Training Trust (HTT), IOM set up the Commercial Farm workers HIV Prevention and Care project in mid-2005. Operating on 18 commercial farms in the Hoedspruit area, the project provides a holistic approach to tackling HIV and has four components.
Since May 2006, Sonke Gender Justice has been the key partner working on the gender component of this project, in conjunction with HTT. This component is designed to redress gender imbalances that contribute to problems in dealing with the HIV epidemic on commercial farms.
Sonke is a South African-based non-profit organisation working throughout Africa. We believe women and men, girls and boys can work together to resist patriarchy, advocate for gender justice and achieve gender transformation.
